Was from Kelowna, BC, Canada. Just in the process of moving to Colorado Springs. Warm and sunny here.

Jimbob    Posted 02-12-2003 at 08:15:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
Used to live in Colorado Springs. The main street thru town is Nevada Ave. Used to hike up Cheyenne Mountain, visit Garden of the Gods & date the pretty Air Force gals there- Peterson Field, I believe.

I love that part of town, the Old Colorado Springs area. Garden of the Gods is pretty cool. I have only been there once, I need to go again and take some pics. My new Hubby works at Peterson in the reserves, Raytheon is his regular job. I hear that another great spot is the Clif Dwellings in Manatou Springs, and the something or other RoyalGorge, I don't remember the name. We did a short tour through Vickers and Cripple Creek area too. I can't wait for summer so I can see more!

litchfield, connecticut. was once a rural place with plenty of hayfields and farms spread out all over town,that was less than 20 years ago cause i am 20 years old and i can remember seeing all that stuff, but now its just a town for rich folks and there garden clubs and big houses. dont mean to offend anyone by that, im just sayin it aint the place that i want to live the rest of my life,my family has 20 acres that has been in the family since the 40's.right now im just tryin to save up a good deal of money so i can get a downpayment on a decent chunk of land somewheres that aint becoming such a yuppie town. right now im working as a machinist, thats what i went to school for, and my girlfriend is in college for agriculture education, so when she is done with that in another 2 years i would like to find a place that has a bit more farming, since she will be wanting to teach at an ag vocational school of course, and around here they have 2 ag vocational schools, but i doubt they will be here long. so basicly im from connecticut but dont plan to be for long

Port Huron, Mi.

Jimbob    Posted 02-12-2003 at 07:55:29       [Reply]  [No Email]
Lived there, both parents grew up there. Family home on Michigan & Gratiot Ave by park on the 'pie' shaped property- large English Tutor. Other home at 2906 Strawberry Lane. I remember grandmas telephone number in 1959. YU 58319. Back then, phone numbers started with two letters. My last name is Benedict. Mike Benedict is an attorney in Pt Huron. Our whole family were either lawyers, doctors or engineers. I took up a career as a 'black sheep' & quite pleased with myself. I used to go to the old Boardwalk bar sometimes- it burnt down in 1981 I believe. I still visit with the owner Ed Ely. Also, our family used to sail the Pt. Huron to Mackinac race. Lots of stories about your area.

Whizz is that a Saddle Bred you got there?

Whizz    Posted 02-12-2003 at 11:23:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
Can't really say for but she sure acts like she has at least some Saddle Bred in her. She was a rescue horse from Kentucky. She is gaited so could very well be.

Her body shape looks it to me. Pretty girl. Nice rescue job!

The sticks of Alabama is some of the prettiest country I've seen, IMO. I grew up in Birmingham, walking distance from Alabama State Fairgrounds. Tell me, is Heflin still a speed-trap? ;)

20 miles east of Lex., Ky. Town called Winchester, county of Clark, around 35,000. Is Heflin a town? My last name is Heflin.........Ray

Maggie/TX    Posted 02-12-2003 at 10:27:44       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yep, it's Heflin, Alabama and is between Birmingham and Atlanta. The new highway may bypass it now, but used to be you had to go through there to get to Atlanta and you better watch your speed as it was a notorious speed-trap.
